Credit Derivatives and Financial Fragility
On September 15, the Federal Reserve convened 14 large credit derivatives-dealer banks to an unusual meeting (Beales 2005b). The last such meeting occurred on September 16, 1998, in secret. At that time, a major financial institution was melting down and threatening to take some large banks with it. This time they met to discuss the same topic: the clearing of transactions in the credit derivatives market.
